The biggest volcano in the world erupted in Hawaii in November 2022.
Hawaii witnessed the first eruption of Mauna Loa, the largest active volcano in the world, in almost 40 years.
A 30-second video clip from a helicopter camera, which captures the exact moment the largest active volcano in the world starts erupting on Monday, is currently trending on social media.
This Monday, November 28, lava started to flow in the crater just before 00:00. In Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, there are five volcanoes, including Mauna Loa.
Another widely shared video from a USGS camera on the summit of Mauna Loa revealed long, luminous eruptive fissures inside the volcanic crater, which stood out against the darkness of night.
According to a tweet from the USGS Volcano Monitoring Office in the morning: “Lava appears to have flowed out of the caldera, but for now, eruptive sources remain confined to the caldera.”
According to the organization, the Hawaii Volcano Observatory was in touch with the emergency response team and would launch a quick aircraft reconnaissance over the 4,168-meter-high volcano.
Despite the crater area and a few nearby highways being closed, according to Hawaiin officials, no evacuation orders had been issued.
The most recent eruption, which took place in 1984, lasted 22 days and resulted in lava flows that extended as far as 7 kilometers from Hilo, a city where 44,000 people currently reside.
